NADPH oxidase is not an essential mediator of oxidative stress or liver injury in murine MCD diet-induced steatohepatitis.

dela Pena, Aileen; Leclercq, Isabelle A; Williams, Jacqueline; Farrell, Geoffrey


Background/Aims: Hepatic oxidative stress is a key feature of metabolic forms of steatohepatitis, but the sources of pro-oxidants are unclear. The NADPH oxidase complex is critical for ROS generation in inflammatory cells; loss of any one component (e.g., gp91phox) renders NADPH oxidase inactive. We tested whether activated inflammatory cells contribute to oxidant stress in steatohepatitis. Methods: gp91phox-/- and wildtype (wt) mice were fed a methionine and choline-deficient (MCD) diet.
